Idries Shah resumes his role as a friendly Afghan anthropologist in this rib-tickling sequel to his best-seller Darkest England. Loaded with delightful anecdotes, he shows how everyone, including the English themselves, misunderstand their island tribe. Non-linear and non-rational this outrageously perceptive book may be contagious, triggering insight in ourselves. It reveals how English habits of mind have much in common with Eastern thought and how their apparently topsy turvy ways of thinking might help us better understand and handle our upside-down world.
